Nick Scott is back in the desert, this time leading a university-funded dig of her own in a ghost town near Boot Hill in Arizona. Walking into a canyon in search of cave-dwelling ruins left by ancient Anasazi, Nick hears the unmistakable sound of helicopters right before stumbling across the downed wreckage of what was once the plane of reporter Matt Gault. Joining forces with John Gault, Matt's grandfather, Nick quickly finds herself taken from the world of academic archeology into a world of government subterfuge and murder. Swept up in the mystery, and determined to uncover the truth, Nick and Gault call together the crew of a WW II B-24 Liberator for one last mission under the blazing skies of the Arizona sun.
